The Conservancy’s Board has chosen our 50th anniversary as the time to launch a major campaign, creating a groundswell of support from those who believe we can impact our destiny.
We believe the time to act is now to ensure the few remaining natural lands that protect our streams, clean our air, and provide us special places to visit are protected forever.
The challenges that energized the Conservancy’s founders 50 years ago feel like a crisis today. Locally, our community grapples with how to sustainability accommodate a population that is projected to grow by 120,000 in the next 20 years. Globally, we face a climate crisis that will become irreversible in that same amount of time if we don’t take immediate action to limit global warming. The stakes are high—we must act now.
